Poisonous moonshine has killed at least 17 people and blinded a dozen more in Kenya's largest slum

Police said the home-distilled drink may have contained traces of methanol. Many of those who died were found in their homes in the Nairobi slum of Kibera. Some were taken to hospital but died after arriving there. Alcohol-related deaths are common in Kenya, with hundreds of people dying every year from poisoned liquor often sold in the brewer's home.
